I usually layer my liniment with Regulus salve, but last month, when the Moon was enclosed by benefics, I decided to add this Luna salve in the mix. It made the liniment extra spicy and I absolutely love it!!! I thought that since Luna is more of a Yin nature it might cancel out the Yang in Regulus but no it just boosted both Regulus and liniment into this absolutely awesome blend of extra spicy relief
This salve has been a gentle swoosh of waves in the way it guides me towards insightful dreams. I already have vivid nights, but on nights when I wear this, I find more clarity around them. The symbols become clear and I’m able to understand the messages from my spirits more easily. The nighttime extends into the day and I’m given a container to explore what is most important for my soul in that moment of time. I have a few Luna in Cancer items but this salve is quickly becoming my favorite.
I decided to test out the Luna in Cancer series with this salve as a more gentle introduction and I found it to be a wonderfully soothing, intensifying primer for anointing oils and body butters from other series. My favorite pairings so far are with Cloud Kingdom oil and Exalted Venus II oil; the former yields an elevated bliss and the latter creates pure embodied joy. The sum of the combination is far more than its parts—the synergistic effect is powerful and can be mood altering, in a good way. The scent and texture is among my favorites of the S+S salves, as well. I’m so glad to have this on hand.
So far, I’ve engaged with the candle, oil and this salve and the salve definitely feels calmer more focused, less dangerous I suppose. I haven’t had negative experiences with nothing out of s+s, though. The salve helps other materia sink deeper into my skin and also further focuses the already super focused materia! Lovely
As someone who was both intrigued by the LiC series and also a little intimidated, the Luna in Cancer salve felt like the best way to jump in. (It was also my first S+ order, eep.) I am SO glad I purchased this! I’ve found that it is both soothing and sensitizing, as promised — and like Kaitlin mentioned, it’s wise to have a goal/process in mind when using. Any potential negative side effects seem far lessened when I am mindful of what I hope to gain (or lose) from each intentional use. It’s worth noting that the only “negative” I’ve experienced has been some emotional discomfort that has actually been really damn good for me… weird how that works 😉 I also have to mention that for any periods of discomfort, there have been at least twice as many experiences of feeling soothed, calmed, enveloped in exquisite softness. Lunar love. Truly fantastic on its own and equally – but differently! – delicious when paired with Cloud King or Exalted Venus II. I plan on grabbing the bulk pot soon because I do NOT want to be without this.
